Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200608-14
(DUMB: Heap buffer overflow)

Luigi Auriemma found a heap-based buffer overflow in the

pan and pitch of the instruments referenced in a '.it' (Impulse
Tracker) file with a large number of nodes.

By enticing a user to load a malicious '.it' (Impulse Tracker) file, an
attacker may execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running
the application that uses a vulnerable DUMB library.

Workaround :
